Are you looking for some good mid range karaoke songs to sing in 2018? You came to the right place.
What is a mid-range voice anyway? Everyone has their vocal limits, i.e., a vocal range, and vocal ranges are typically being put in several types. Female vocal range types are the soprano, mezzo-soprano, and alto, while male vocal range types are countertenor, tenor, baritone, and bass.
That is for the voices in general, but everyone has their own ranges. These individual ranges are often referred to as chest voice (the lowest), middle voice, and head voice. While “|the middle” in this definition represents the transition between chest and head voice, this is the most uneasy range for singers. For professional singers, this middle register actually represents the most challenging range (but probably the great majority of those looking for good mid-range karaoke songs to sing here are not among these).
So, no matter how skillful or not in music anyone is, everyone is different and hence has different vocal range, as we have said earlier, but that also means that “mid-range” is unique as well. But we are not here to stick with some strict musicological definitions, right? That’s why we will stick to mid-range being something that does not encompass the highest and the lowest voices, but something that is comfortable to most of the people (with no proper musical education).
Now the question arises, how to find your own middle range voice? Well, it might be not as easy to realize this on your own if you were not musically trained. But, try this out: sing for the lowest tones you can, up to the highest ones. When you start feeling the vibrations in your mouth and throat, that would be somewhat of your middle range (while for the lowest you would use your chest as a support, and for the highest you would hear your voice “pushing” in your head and feeling like it is forming above your palate and in the upper skull).
